HE may be great, only time will tell. But the thought that just one guy is going to make all the difference is on the same level of delusional as is hiring a spread coach is going to fix everything.

The good news is that most years you donít need a team with that many athletes.  Saban has really skewed the way we look at things.  What he does over and over every year is just amazing.  Several coaches like Miles and Richt could put together the talent.  But they werenít as good at coaching.  Lots of guys are great coaches, but they canít get that much talent.  Some, like Spurrier can put both talent and coaching together for a nice run of a few years.  But Saban?  He has been doing this for pretty much a decade.  It is truly unprecedented.

All that said, OU nearly beat Georgia.  And I have no doubt that we can be absolutely as good as OU on offense.  And like most teams and unlike those two last night, OU has mere mortals in defense.  They werenít quite good enough, but it easily could have been Bama and OU playing last night.  That is the formula.  Our biggest hurdle right now is being in the same division as Saban.  But when he retires in a few, they wonít be able to keep at him he same level and things will open up a little.

I live and breath arkansas football. I am optimistic. 1 mcfadden type recruit and arkansas is back.  This coaching staff will recruit well.  I know there are some who have pom poms and mini skirts and stand outside bobby petrinos house.  The coach since 1983 who never stayed anywhere longer than 3 years.  This is a great staff.  I see great things in the works.

Ironically CM was at SMU for three years.

10 times in 13 seasons the NC game has featured 2 teams in the top 10 in DEFENSIVE EFFICIENCY. Defense, even though most do not want to hear it or care about it, still matters ALOT when it comes to being more than a 7 or 8 win team.

UCF could hang and beat either of these teams. GEORGIA JUST LOST TO THE TIDEíS BACK UP QUARTERBACK WHOíS NOT PLAYED A MEANINGFUL SNAP ALL YEAR - but somehow UCF with arguably the second best QB in football and definitely a top 5er couldnít hang with them. Sure thing there buddy.
You are getting mileage out of your UCF jokes! 🤪

I don't know why so many posters on here think it's all about having 5-star recruits and winning national championships. There is WAY more to college football than that. I look at Razorback football as my life. It's entertainment and something to follow as a TRUE fan. You enjoy the good times and strive to get better through the bad. You celebrate big wins and look forward to returning to somewhat of a national power. It doesn't matter one bit if we don't play for a national championship. Arkansas athletics overall is an elite program, year after year. We play in the toughest division in the toughest conference. We are on National TV week after week. I would take losing to Alabama on national tv any day than beating Okie State or Baylor and no one sees it much less cares. Some of you on here just need to find another team to either root for or rip on. It's really sad.

Burks is the level of athlete that would start for Bama. Sure time could prove otherwise but right now yes.

Burks is the kind of player that could make a Dmac like impact on the Hog football program the dude is a monster.  Just gotta stay healthy and hopefully stay home.

Legit 5 star players stand out like a sore thumb when on teams that are not comprised of 4 and 5 star players.

I believe 7 of their starting 11 on D were former four/five stars; I could be wrong but I can't ever remember an Arkansas defense having that kind of pedigree. Obviously recruiting rankings doesn't automatically mean studs and therefore wins, but acting like OU was devoid of talent isn't exactly accurate.

Bama really is loaded down with 4 and 5 star talent. I mean the game winning play was a 5 star WR catching a ball from a 5 star QB being protected by a 5 Star LT with a 5 star RB next to him all true freshman all non starters lol.

Who says OU is devoid of talent on defense?  That is an argument no one would make, unless like you, one is erecting a straw man to knock down.  Itís just that they are several notches below those teams last night and yet, they were still almost there.

If you can get the athletes to be five star across the board AND match that with superior coaching, it is well nigh unbeatable.  On the other hand, there are other ways to skin the cat and Bama has to slip someday. 

Ten years ago all they talked about was parity in college football and they said there would never be any dynasties like there used to be.  Now, no one talks about parity and Saban has engineered the greatest dynasty of all time.

RIGHT NOW this Bama model is an anomaly.  It will end and things will go back to more like they were when we were Clint Stoerner turnover from beating the national champions.  Or, 2006 when even after a bad opening loss, we went on a run and had our path clear to the NC game if Nutt hadnít gone crazy. Or even 2010 where we played tremendously exciting games in doubt right up until the end against the best two teams in the country and the NC winner.

So?  They were literally one play, one first down even, from being there last night.  And I should hope they have superior talent the worst defense in Arkansas history.  The point is, Arkansas has in the recent past, the Nutt team with Chris Houston on it comes to mind, had teams with as much defensive talent as that OU team has.

If the standard is Sabanís Alabama, we and nearly every other team should just quit football.  If in the other hand, the standard is good enough to get that cat skinned some other way, we can do it.

I said, I would rather lose to Alabama, playing a game in the national spotlight rather than some BS win that no one cares about. I like knowing that my friends from around the country are watching Arkansas play a perennial powerhouse and sometimes, we pull off a big win and it's great. No, I don't like losing but I also enjoy a good game, win or lose. That's part of life and part of being a FAN. Playing in the SEC is a privilege, we are one of 14 teams fortunate enough to do so. Yes I would be happy with a 9-10 win season. PERIOD.

i do

Burks is the level of athlete that would start for Bama. Sure time could prove otherwise but right now yes.

Burks is the kind of player that could make a Dmac like impact on the Hog football program the dude is a monster.  Just gotta stay healthy and hopefully stay home.

Legit 5 star players stand out like a sore thumb when on teams that are not comprised of 4 and 5 star players.

Burks is an Alabama type defensive player. That happens to be an even better receiver..lol

I said, I would rather lose to Alabama, playing a game in the national spotlight rather than some BS win that no one cares about. I like knowing that my friends from around the country are watching Arkansas play a perennial powerhouse and sometimes, we pull off a big win and it's great. No, I don't like losing but I also enjoy a good game, win or lose. That's part of life and part of being a FAN. Playing in the SEC is a privilege, we are one of 14 teams fortunate enough to do so. Yes I would be happy with a 9-10 win season. PERIOD.

So...again...you just said you'd take an Arkansas Razorbacks loss over a win.

Is it fall yet?

But the knock on Richt was always that he had the players like Bama but did not know what to do with them.
Oh no school is better positioned for recruiting like UGA but they have underachieved over the years.

I'm not sure who your friends are, but I can almost guarantee that they're not going to watch Alabama vs. a mediocre, at best, Arkansas team, unless they are from the state and/or went to the University. Saying you'd rather lose to Alabama than win against Ok. State, who, by the way, has a very strong program, is absolutely preposterous. Good day, sir.

No he isn't taking a loss.  It's about being a competitor and beating or trying to beat the best.  Arkansas needs to start beating A&M again, dominate the Mississippi schools, and be right there with Auburn and LSU and we will be right there again.  Hootie was right there in 2006, we were close in 2010 and 2011.  It can be done.

Bro I dunno what you're reading but he legitimately said "I would rather lose to Alabama...than some BS win."

He's saying he'd rather lose an exciting game than win a boring one. Forgive me for wanting boring wins, not exciting losses.

Losing to Alabama is taking a loss. Losing means you lost. A loss is a loss.

Texas HS football is turing out soft defenders

Few pass rushers and CBs and not much else
7 on 7 players?

To be a winner you have to take your shot against the best.  Even if it means the odds are against you.  You still win your share of games.  One other thing, I wouldn't mind seeing some that Ryan Mallet swag in our players.
